Controversial images of the Raid des Alizés, the organization reacts

The images of the competitors of the Raid des Alizés having fun at the Habitation Depaz in Saint-Pierre have toured social networks and arouse the anger and indignation of Martinicans. Following this, the organizers of the event want to be reassuring and provide details on what really happened on Tuesday evening (23 November).

The photos and videos of the evening of yesterday (Tuesday 23 November) at the Habitation Depaz for the Raid des Alizés have already toured the island. Images deemed indecent given the health and social context that affects Martinique.

The organizer indicates that it was about the reception of the participants which is done traditionally at the airport with a musical group. “But compared to the covid, the animation has been moved. There was no big party as some people may think. It lasted 15 to 30 minutes maximum. Especially since, the next day, they had a competition. . It would not have been logical. It only lasted a quarter of an hour “, explains Samir Boudjemaa, general manager of TV SPORT EVENT.

All followed by a briefing and dinner. This morning, the competitors started the competition with the canoe event. The organizers ensure that all arrangements have been made at the health level. The participants are in a sanitary bubble throughout the competition.
